Only last season both teams played together in the championship. Fulham FC then reached the promotion playoffs, prevailed against the other three competitors, and returned to the Premier League as the third promoted team. Sheffield Wednesday, however, remained as 16th in the second-highest English division, but now has the chance to move into the Round of 16 in the EFL Cup.
In the run-up to the match between Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday, however, the odds of the bookmakers turn towards the home side, as the odds comparison of the betting base below shows.
At Fulham against Sheffield Wednesday, the prediction must take into account that the Cottagers have lost both opening games in the Premier League and do not have the greatest momentum. This is compared to the guests from Sheffield, who are not only still unbeaten in four competitive games, but still without conceding a goal.
Against this background, it makes a lot of sense to place the tip on “Under 2.5 goals” at Fulham against Sheffield Wednesday, which covers many eventualities.
Fulham – Stats & current form
After Fulham FC was promoted to the Premier League in 2018, but just missed relegation there, the Cottagers returned to the upper house of English football after just one year in the second division.
This means that the team from West London under current coach Scott Parker will be in a different league for three seasons in a row. Of course, the whites want to stop using the elevator and establish themselves in the Premier League.
Will Tah and/or Lookman still come from the Bundesliga?
A lot of money was pumped into the already nominally strong promotion team. In addition to the loan from PSG substitute keeper Alphonse Aréola as well as Ola Aina and Mario Lemina, four other strong players have come up so far. According to the rumor mill, Leverkusen’s Jonathan Tah and Leipzig’s Ademola Lookman are also high on the shopping list.
The cottagers may announce completion here soon and intensify their efforts. The league opener finally failed in all forms. A cracking 0-3 home defeat in the London Derby against Arsenal FC was followed last Sunday by a 3-4 defeat at fellow promoted Leeds.
Already in your mind at the league game against Aston Villa?
At least in the EFL Cup, the whites made it into the third round, for which they certainly did not cover themselves with fame in the narrow 1-0 away win at Ipswich Town. In this game, Scott Parker also sent one or the other player from the B team to the field.
Even now at Fulham against Sheffield Wednesday, the tip must include that the Cottagers face a very important duel against a direct competitor in the fight for the league’s whereabouts with the game against Aston Villa at the weekend. Against this background, the protection of other regular players could certainly open up opportunities for the guests.
The probable lineup of Fulham:
➲ Aréola – Robinson – Le Marchand – Odoi – Tete – Lemina – Anguissa – Kebano – Reid – Knockaert – Mitrovic

Sheffield Wednesday – Stats & current form
Four English championships and three overall victories in the FA Cup have already been recorded for the traditional club Sheffield Wednesday, which has not won a major title since the 1930s. Only one overall victory in the EFL Cup, which dates back to 1991, is still to be booked.
In any case, the Owls only eke out a marginal existence in English football in the current millennium. In 2000 they were relegated from the Premier League and have since played three seasons in the third-rate League One.
With a heavy point deduction in the 2020/21 season
Sheffield Wednesday has currently been part of the championship for nine years, in which mostly placements only jumped out of the lower half of the table.
- “We have done very well in the cup so far. If we bring our high standards to the field, we have the chance to win against everyone. ” – Garry Monk at YorkshireLive
Accordingly, this year could be very tight. Because of their stadium sale, the Owls were finally punished by the EFL with a deduction of twelve points, which must first be caught up.
The start of the season is all the better, in which the first four points were scored from the first two league games. The season’s goal can only be to stay in the league.
Four competitive games and still no goal
The EFL Cup, in which there is usually something to be gained for lower-class clubs, is just right. With Walsall and Rochdale, the first two opponents have already been successfully bowled out of the competition, whereby the Owls benefited from the fact that their defense has so far been like a one.
There are still zero goals conceded from the first four league games, which is why we believe it is most sustainable to use the odds for the “Under 2.5 goals” bet at Fulham against Sheffield Wednesday. If the vest of the second division team remains white again, they will be able to move into the round of 16. There it would either go against West Brom or Brentford. Another game in which the underdog would by no means have no chance …
The probable lineup of Sheffield Wednesday:
➲ Dawson – van Aken – Lees – Iorfa – Penney – Harris – Bannan – Luongo – Brown – Rhodes – Windass
